Here's a good thread / poll on this very subject.

Hey Sled does your girlfriend drive a Honda? Does she play work out tapes by Fonda? Oh yeah, Fonda (besides being a communist) does not have an engine in the back of her Honda...

Picnics are usually boneless, right? I think the bone-in adds a lot of flavor to meat.

Picnics have more bones than the butts do, unless you buy the boneless variety...

Personally I prefer the Boston Butt. (aka Pork Shoulder Blade Roast)
To me it seems to have a milder flavor that a picnic

If you need that much, you should buy some of each and mix them together. That way you get the whole shoulder which IMHO tastes better than one part by itself.
